Shanghai International Lighting Fair will be held from 3 ‒ 5 September 2018 in Hall W5 at Shanghai New International Expo Center. The format of the show has undergone a major revamp as city lighting becomes the main theme of the 2018 edition. The fair will be a pioneering platform that showcases the latest designs, innovations and projects which can revolutionise the way we light our cities.
Commenting on the major changes undertaken for Shanghai International Lighting Fair (SILF), Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, said: “After more than 20 years of involvement in the lighting industry in China, we understand the crucial role that lighting plays in our cities. It not only helps to present the historical and cultural impression of a city, but also the charm and personality of our surroundings. This year, SILF will for the first time serve our city lighting and construction industry peers as we place the focus on city lighting. It is also our first time to join forces with government bodies in China. Together, with the support of various lighting associations and organisations, we will pursue world class city lighting that is beneficial for everyone.”
China’s city lighting industry shows no signs of slowing down as its scope for modernisation and innovation grows ever more ambitious. SILF will become a one-stop platform to explore the future development of city lighting and will include aspects such as project planning and design, construction and maintenance as well as landscape lighting solutions and applications.
Promising to be one of the highlights of this year’s revamped fair is the Shanghai International City Lighting Summit, co-hosted by the Shanghai Landscaping & City Appearance Administrative Bureau and LUCI (Lighting Urban Community International) Association. The Shanghai International City Lighting Summit will focus on the healthy development and future direction of city lighting.
